Pentecost Sunday

May 15, 2016

MERCIFUL POWER

We are told that the Holy Spirit will teach us everything that we need to know and remind us of all that Jesus told us. So, what do you want to know?

Since I have always believed that the right questions begin with a reflection of what God has been doing in our lives, perhaps it is most helpful to think about the questions and the understanding we have searched for through this past Lent and Easter season.

How many expectations and conditions do we put on mercy that we empty it of its concrete meaning? As Pope Franc writes, “This is the worst way of watering down the Gospel.”

You see the question that often gets asked, is whether or not God exists? It is the answer we most want to know; the answer for which we most want proof.   But what we really need to know is does God exist who is rich in mercy?
